As I start writing this, I have no idea where it's going to end up. Let's see what happens.......
"As The Years Go Passing By" originated in the late 50's, from the "pen" of Deadric Malone. As we discussed awhile back during our look at Duke/Peacock Records, "Deadric Malone" was a pseudonym used by label chief Don Robey. Robey had a crew of songwriters, most of whom would sell him their songs for $25 to $50 upon completion. Robey then attached the Malone name to them and kept the royalties for himself.
